THQ scraps Juiced and Stuntman franchises

THQ has today announced its decision "not to pursue its Juiced and Stuntman intellectual properties".

Both franchises saw releases in 2007, with Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights and Stuntman: Ignition each releasing across multiple platforms. Although not receiving universal acclaim both titles were not without merit, Stuntman in particular proving great addictive fun for high-score junkies. (Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights, Mobile, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Stuntman: Ignition , Xbox 360)

interesting decision since both sold more than a million copies each

Actually, I think the company might be in turmoil. These two games are being scrapped, as well as Frontlines for the PS3.

Citing sales numbers again. As if anyone gives a damn. I expect nothing less than unpaid corporate mouthpiece like you. The fact is both "franchises" sucks regardless of many crap in a box they sold.

Im surprised they dropped juice, although it was poor it sold quite well.

Stuntman however sold virtually nothing, so its not surprising.

stuntman was a good car series
no other car game like it. never played juiced, but judging from you all i should be happy i havent. THQ's future is looking shaky

Juiced could "possibly" (although it wouldn't have)have been saved since NFS fell far from grace. Stuntman, good freaking riddance.

Jucied was garbage. I always liked Stuntman.
Sucks there won't be anymore Stuntman games.

Maybe THQ is being bought out or it may close down, who knows?

I never liked Jucied and Stunman was ok.

Great call on THQ. Those games sucked.

This sucks. Stuntman was good fun, albeit occasionally frustrating.

Does this mean the IP is available for other developers to purchase, or has it simply been scrapped?

im happy that juiced got canceled(wasnt really that good), but im suprised they cancelled stuntman. there were many people including myself who enjoyed that series
GIJeff  +   2938d ago
the first
stuntman was good. Much like the first driver was good. Sometimes sequels just get worse. Im sad to see an origonal title like stuntman go...

juice...well, thank the maker for that infected limb being chopped.

Good to hear!
The Stuntman games just weren't that fun to play, so, i'm glag that is done!

Juiced should have just stayed with the "Street Racing Syndicate" name. SRS was a decent game that they could have built on, but they decided to take it in a different direction... and we see what that got them!

There are a lot of great racing franchises already, so these will not be missed!

Stuntman was pretty good..
A new game could have perfected it, so that's dumb.

And it was never just a racing game, but a trial and error arcade game. I think some hated it for the wrong reasons.
